SAVETIME (System Variable)

Sets the automatic save interval, which is measured in minutes.

Type: Integer
Saved in: Registry
Initial value: 10




Turns off automatic saving


Saves the drawing automatically at the intervals specified in minutes

The value of SAVETIME is an integer between 0 and 600.

The SAVETIME timer starts as soon as you make a change to a drawing. It is reset and restarted by a manual QSAVE, SAVE, or SAVEAS. The current drawing is saved to the path specified by the SAVEFILEPATH system variable. The file name is stored in the SAVEFILE system variable.

Note: To optimize speed, automatic saves are incremental, temporarily overriding the value of ISAVEPERCENT with a value of 90. A full save occurs only when the number of changes exceeds the ISAVEPERCENT setting.
